Essential elements of yoga meditation
With the increasing popularity of ancient yoga, meditation in yoga has also attracted people’s curiosity and attention.
Two extreme cognitions emerged among the practitioners. One is that many friends see it as a fearful way, thinking that meditation is mysterious and difficult to master.
Or think that meditation is a single meditation meditation.
Some people even think that meditation is “heart as death” and a “spiritual suicide”.
The other extreme is that meditation is easy, eager to focus on meditation methods, and lack of understanding of the nature and operation of the heart, often only in the form of meditation and lose the reality of meditation, the direction of deviation.
In yoga classes, I saw scholars sitting cross-legged, but not lethargic.
Some coaches lack the advancement and think that yoga stops here. The blind guide the blind, so that teaching materials generally do not have a comprehensive understanding of yoga.
Actually, meditation is not mysterious.
The ultimate goal of all true yoga meditation is to bring people to the state of sanmadism.
Yoga practitioners control their physiology through meditation and transcend the physical three states.
Communicate with the truth in a deep stillness and achieve supreme joy.
Routine meditation exercises have many benefits, the most obvious of which are the following: First, make you recognize yourself, your reactions and thoughts, and you can see your thinking patterns.
You can change the way you do things.
If you can grasp the context of your thinking, you can grasp yourself.
Second, reducing stress, reducing stress can relax our body and mind.
Reflect on the mistakes in our lives and see what is bothering us.
Think about what we are thinking in our heads. Increase the intensity and concentration, let us do things to spend more.
Fourth, meditation allows us to better understand ourselves, I wonder if you can understand, most of us are actually very difficult to really get along with ourselves.
When meditation we can really learn to enjoy the joy of being alone.

What is samadhi.
Among the eight branches of yoga, Samadhi is the highest stage of yoga.
According to the famous yoga classic “Bhagavad-gita”, when a person completely separates his mind from material mental activities as a result of practicing yoga, such a state of perfection is called meditation or samadhi.
In this concept, the term “disengagement from physical mental activity” appears.
How do you understand this name?
We have to look at it in two ways.
The first is not to regard the purpose of the work as a dependency on the results of the work.
Many people are eager for the results of their work before the work begins.
This caused the roots of his unhappiness, and some feared that they would not get the results they wanted after starting work.
After the work was completed, I did not achieve my expected desire.
Fear of losing what you have achieved.
The work results are really lost.
I even did my job successfully, but I didn’t think I did enough, etc.
These excessive focus on results create overlapping processes and can be stressful.
When we break away from this state of dependence on results, we should do what we should do, pay close attention to the process of every moment, and let every minute be fulfilled.
Happiness and joy will come to us.
We can think of it as detached from material activities to some extent.
The second is beyond the three states of matter.Yoga believes that material nature has three forms: kindness, passion, and ignorance.
“When eternal creatures come into contact with nature, they are interfered with by these forms” (Bhagavad-gita, chapter 14 fifth ode).
These patterns always have a footprint at any time.
Everyone may be surprised that ignorance and passion will cause someone to lose their rationality and of course to surpass them, but why go beyond kindness?
In the sixth chant of Chapter 14 of the Bhagavad-gita, there is such an explanation, “The state of goodness is purer than other states, and it frees man from all evil retribution.
People in this state cultivate and develop wisdom, but they are distorted by the concept of happiness.
In other words, people who are in a good state still only care about themselves.
This can still be a source of unhappiness for the practitioner.
For example, motherly love, which is generally recognized as selfless love in the world, but most of this love is still in a good state. As a result, when the child gets married, the mother puts some kind of resentment on her daughter-in-law or son-in-law because of the sense of loss.This has created a delicate family relationship that has not been reconcilable since ancient times.
Another example is that you gave a seat for an old man on the bus, but the old man did not thank you when he was seated. At this time, many friends may feel a little unhappy.
These are the reasons for being kind.
Because you still care more about yourself than about the thing itself.
This situation will continue to improve through continuous yoga practice.
Only those who are not interested in their happiness can be truly happy.
This seemingly incomprehensible truth is logical and easy to understand for real yogis.
What kind of state can explain a person’s detachment from the three states of material nature?
According to the Bhagavad-gita, when a person faces various thoughts and emotions, he always maintains the attitude of the onlooker, knowing that only various forms are active.
When he treats the so-called joy and pain, treats the earth and gold equally, treats the so-called private enemies and close friends equally, is not stigmatized, and gives up his attachment to self-interest, such a person goes beyond the three states of material nature.
The various exercises of the yoga system in all of them are to make people into this material nature.
Departure from these two states also departs from material psychological activity.
